This application was designed to provide an immediate and friendly tool to teachers and parents for teaching the linguistic bases and the pronunciation of words to children in pre-school and school ages.
Using a “game” approach, iSchool will help our children in the learning process in a simple and natural way with six engaging activities!
There is a vocabulary with more than 1200 words (with different complexity and length) to help the child to develop the ability of association between the word and its sound and image. For each word, in fact, you can hear the pronunciation, display its image and also verify the correct hyphenation.
The vocabulary is fully expandable and customizable with the addition of new words, images and voices. It’s possible to create specific training paths, always new and suitable for every educational need.
Due to its simplicity and immediacy, the application is also suitable for children with special needs and problems. For example, it’s possible to use the alphabet with the standard symbols for signs in some of the games.
